Deep League Report: Week 12

4

Scooter Hotz

Look! Decent starting pitchers! Grab 'em!

I’m not really sure what’s going on in the Deep League Report this week. Decent starting pitchers don’t show up here very often, but this week there’s one in each league. There might be some East Coast bias in play, too, since three of the six NL-only players featured this week are Mets. But enough with the prologue—on with the show.

The Stash List: 11th Edition

10

Greg Wellemeyer

Cameron Maybin, Joc Pederson, Lewis Brinson, and Derek Fisher all graduate, but there's a new batch of stashables.

Here are the four types of players eligible for inclusion:

Minor leaguers: anyone currently in the minors.
Major leaguers on the DL: anyone currently on the disabled list who is owned in fewer than 25 percent of ESPN leagues.
Closers-in-waiting: any reliever who is not actively getting saves and is owned in fewer than 25 percent of ESPN leagues.
Others-in-waiting: any other player who is not currently active in the role that would net him the most fantasy value.

Does losing in the majors and winning in the minors eventually lead to long-term success?

I was going to show you two lists of major-league teams, ranked highest to lowest. There are 30 teams, so that kind of list can run pretty long. Maybe you don’t like reading tables with 30 lines. So I’ll do you a favor. I’ll shorten the first list for you. It’ll still make my point, but you won’t have to plow through as many rows.

Fantasy Freestyle: Stash List Supplemental

1

Greg Wellemeyer

Going deep, deep, deep undercover to find prospects (or non-prospects) for your deepest of leagues. Bring your diving bell!

Do you play in a deeper or mono league and wish the Stash List had some names that weren’t already owned in your league? You’ve come to the right spot. Last time I did this, I gave you Dinelson Lamet and Eric Skoglund, both of whom are in the majors and have flashed a little something. On the other hand, I also gave you Ryan O’Hearn, a first base prospect who’s hitting .214/.308/.317 in the month-plus since that piece ran. Such is the nature of deep speculation. I’m not deterred. Let’s do some more.

Deep League Report: Week 11

2

Scooter Hotz

Hello, Bourjos! In the AL, Peter Bourjos returns to relevancy with the Rays—perhaps—and Alen Hanson gets an opportunity with the White Sox—maybe. On the NL side, Kirby Yates might be the "right" man for the job in the Padres bullpen, and Jose Pirela has a chance to play without much competition.

Week 11 is a good week at the Deep League Report. There are a lot more innings to go around on the pitching side and a lot more playing time available on the hitting side. Four of the six featured pitchers are starters and at least three of the hitters should get more playing time than someone on the bad side of a platoon. It’s a good week to be active in the free agent pool and on the waiver wire in deep AL-only and NL-only leagues. Get to work.

The Call-Up: Lewis Brinson

0

Kate Morrison and Mike Gianella

Hey look, another top prospect headed to Milwaukee.

The Situation: Though they entered the year with inscrutable expectations, the Brewers find themselves on top of the heap that is the NL Central. Recently, however, they’ve had several of their key hitters go down with injury (Ryan Braun, Jonathan Villar) leading to the promotion of one of their top prospects, Lewis Brinson. Luckily for the Brewers, Villar’s injury came right after the projected Super 2 deadline, meaning they’ll get to pay Brinson less when it comes to arbitration.

The Background: The Brewers acquired Brinson in 2016 from the Rangers in the Jonathan Lucroy trade, alongside pitcher Luis Ortiz and, later, outfielder Ryan Cordell. The Rangers drafted Brinson in their loaded 2012 class out of Coral Springs high school in Florida, taking the lanky outfielder with their first-round pick, 29th overall.

The Call-Up: Josh Hader

0

Jeffrey Paternostro and George Bissell

The hard-throwing lefty takes his fastball/slider combo to the Brewers' bullpen, for now.

The Situation: The pipeline of prospects keeps coming in Milwaukee. Shortly after calling up Brett Phillips, the Brewers have added their top pitching prospect Josh Hader to the bullpen mix.

The Background: Hader was the Orioles' 19th-round draft pick in 2012. A local prep arm, he burst onto prospect radars with a dominant professional debut in short-season ball that summer. His full-season debut went swimmingly as well. Hader struck out nearly a batter per inning as a 19-year-old in the South Atlantic League before he was dealt to the Astros at the deadline as part of the Bud Norris package. The lefty wasn’t done wandering yet, though (he even looks the part of a well-traveled roadie).

Welcome back to The FAAB Review, the weekly series that looks at FAAB bidding in expert leagues to help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Every week, I closely scrutinize the expert free agent bids in LABR Mixed, Tout Wars NL, and LABR AL.

As a reminder, LABR uses a $100 budget with $1 minimum bids, while Tout Wars uses a $1,000 budget with $0 minimum bids. LABR and Tout Wars use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET for all FAAB claims. Any statistics mentioned in this article are through the previous Sunday’s games.

The Stash List: The 10th Edition

Greg Wellemeyer

Hunter Pence, Jacob Faria and Sean Newcomb say hello to active major-league duty and good-bye to the List. A.J. Reed also bids adios, but it's because there's seemingly no way for him to reach the majors right now.

The Graduates: Hunter Pence (Previous Rank: 4), Jacob Faria (22), Sean Newcomb (23)

Pence returned to the Giants lineup Sunday.
